A Ruined Family Easter Dinner
A Ruined Family Easter Dinner: we were 2nd group seated at 4 PM. We waited so long in between courses that we wanted to leave. We had to ask other staff to find our waitress and this was before it became crowded. We spent 2 and 1/2 hours there. She did't even come back to give us the check; on appearing she said: "I don't suppose you want dessert do you?" We were the only African American family there; I wonder! This is my fav restaurant...we have been there several times and well treated...food scrumptious; this time it was luke-warm. If I had wanted it re-heated I would not have found the waitress.
I will return because I love the food. Hope the manager takes care of this problem.

Our service wasn't great since our waiter seemed very unfamiliar with the foods and wines.
Wines? "We have red and white. Which do you want?" Hmmm.
But the youngest helper for our table was the water guy and he was exceptional, pleasant and unobtrusive. He could teach some of the waiters.

We thought the food was very
We thought the food was very good with two exceptions. The entree special that came topped with scallops had one scallop. It seemed a little cheap of the restaurant to serve one scallop when our expectation was different. Also, I asked for chicken added to my penne tre formaggio (sp?) and the chicken came out over cooked tasting, or at least unappealing.
The garlic knots were a hit and I enjoyed the house Pinot Grigio, muscles and cesar salad.

Always a treat
Cafe La Fontana is consistently great. We always enjoy going there. The menu is small but everything on it is tasty and they always have different specials. BYOB on Mondays and Tuesdays which is nice if you would like to bring your own bottle of wine but there is a full bar if you do not. Also, if you go online you can buy gift certificates for M-Th for $25 that only cost $10! You can only use 1 per visit but still, BYOB Monday and basically $15 off your meal, you can't beat that.

We wanted to try this restaurant for some time and the new BYOB feature on Monday and Tuesday pulled us right in. The spacious dinning room is separated from the bar for a quiet atmosphere. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. She opened our wine and delivered a basket of warm garlic knots (so good). The menu has a nice selection of Italian favorites. I requested the Chicken saltimbocca to be made with veal and they were happy to accommodate. My wife ordered the Salmon special. Our entrées came with potatoes and a veggie and we ordered a side of sauteed spinach. Everything was delicious and the portions were ample. We will definitely return. If you like BYOB's give this a try on Monday or Tuesday while they still offer it.

What a Gem!
Everything was perfect from the moment I walked in. I was greeted by name and sat promptly. The food was excellent. I had Salmon with crab. Perfect. The staff was attentive. The food was hot and prompt. Definitely a "be back" place!

I had lunch here with my elderly MIL & 3 others. We loved the selection on the lunch buffet!

The setting was very comfortable and the food was good. The buffet had a good selection of entrees and dessert yet I expected the turkey to be carved rather than processed slices. Also, when I made the reservations I wasn't made aware it was a buffet. I even viewed the website prior to making the reservation and there was no posting regarding their Thanksgiving meal. That being said I was thankful they were open on Thanksgiving and my family and I enjoyed the evening.

When we arrive the hospitality
When we arrive the hospitality was exceptional. We were seated right away asked if we would like a drink. As the rest of our party arrived the same approach was used. The food was exceptional and served on time and hot. With ten people that does not often happen. We were all very pleased with the food and service.
